As you might know, today is my Birthday. Yes I turn 21 today and I am proud to present the ‘Swoosh Away’ theme for WordPress. This is the first theme that I have made for people to download and it is free.
Creating this theme from scratch was fun. I have a few people to thank whose posts were very useful:
- New page menu function in WordPress 2.7
- Display your tweets without a plugin
- How to add a dynamic sidebar in WordPress?
- Fixed width
- W3 XHTML valid
- Designed with SEO in mind (eg <h1> appears just once on every page and that is the poast title)
- wordpress 2.7 ready (I presume it shouldn’t have problems with wordpress 2.8)
- Threaded comments (requires Brian’s Threaded Comments plugin included in download package)
The most difficult part was naming the theme! With thousands of WP themes already available, it has become so difficult naming them. I’ll be grateful if you can suggest me a better name.
Please let me know how you like the theme. Even if you don’t end up downloading the theme, please do let me know what you think about it. Comments and suggestions are always welcome! I’m coming back from a long layoff so please help me spread the word. Digg it or tweet it if you like it.
Psst: I plan to make many more themes before my next semester starts. If you like this theme, please subscribe to this blog. Expect a much better premium theme in the weeks to come!
